Kids Need Kiwanis. The Augusta Kiwanis Club is dedicated to serving the local community through various service and fundraising projects. Our club has been in service to our community for more than 95 years. We are part of Kiwanis International, an organization serving children for over 100 years.  To read the history of Kiwanis International, click here.

We'd love for you to come join us at one of our meetings or a service project. 

We meet every Thursday from 12 - 1:30pm at The Senator Inn in Augusta.  



Projects & Community Outreach

Each year, the Augusta Kiwanis Club chooses projects that will make a difference to children in their community.  From ringing the bell for the Salvation Army, to collecting diapers for distribution to those in need, to fundraising and building a new playground, our Kiwanians dedicate their time and effort to changing lives.  #KidsNeedKiwanis

When children need to be at MaineGeneral, they can play on the new Kiwanis Playground to pass some time, thanks to the Augusta Kiwanis Club, Kiwanis Foundation of New England, Kennebec Valley Board of Realtors, and the Augusta Rotary Club.

Member Testimonials

 

"I enjoy being a Kiwanian because of the comradery and teamwork that exist in this organization. But most of all I enjoy being part of an organization that supports children in our community.  Kiwanis provides scholarships for education, food for the hungry and builds playgrounds for children so they can get outside and exercise. The work and dedication of this group is truly inspiring and I’m proud to be a member." 

Chuck Hays, President and CEO, MaineGeneral Health & MaineGeneral Medical Center


"Kiwanis offers many layers that you can be involved in. Maybe you've been approached by someone about joining or learning more about Kiwanis, or maybe you're already looking for a way to serve your community. Kiwanis partners with various organizations to increase their impact, usually donating to local non-profit organizations and agencies that make a difference in the community. It could be a diaper drive or volunteering at a community event to help share what Kiwanis does for the children.  Not only is it great to perform community service, I also have a lot of fun with my fellow members. Kiwanis sponsors different youth programs and gives back to help give the children in the community great resources to help them become a great future leader.  Kiwanis isn't just about doing service - it's about the great relationships that you make with the members and others in the community! Our Thursday lunches are great fellowship with other members as well as an opportunity to listen and learn from a speaker every week to learn what is going on in our community.  I joined Kiwanis because it's perfect for me – changing children’s lives and improving our community. The projects we do really make a difference in our community and who wouldn’t want to be a part of that impact!"

Katie Doherty, President & CEO, Kennebec Valley Chamber of Commerce
